Although the name BrasaSoccer suggests that the academy is only for playing football, we also want to present other sports such as soccer, beach soccer and others for children. By offering physical education in an organized program, we prevent them from taking refuge in alcohol, drugs and crime, which are structural problems in this disadvantaged neighborhood.
In our project, we created a performance group and a recreational group. The performance group is formed and divided by children of various age groups. Within this group, we focus on the development of norms and general values such as respect, cooperation and discipline. Beside this, we emphasize the sportive aspects: technique, tactics and resistance. Within the recreational group, there is more emphasis on the social development of children exercising and playing together. For them, school is a fun introduction to football.
